Hey! Just in case the supermarkets, chocolate shops, card stores and lingerie outlets haven’t reminded you already, Valentine’s Day is coming up.

It’s a horrendously clichéd calendar event with little relevance to anyone, especially those of us who don’t have a significant other to shower with cards and petrol station rose bouquets. Plus we don’t get the day off work or any widespread special confectionary creations. So it’s basically pointless, right?

If you’re as cynical as me, then yes. However, it does make a good excuse to bake these incredibly sexy Melting Lindt Lindor Brownies.

Be these brownies to satisfy your partner’s sweet tooth, to share with co-workers, or just to put a smile on your own face, they are bound to please.

These new Melting Lindt Lindor Brownies are just downright ridiculous. Rich, moist and velvety chocolate brownies, putting store bought or box-mix efforts to shame. They are made with gloriously creamy Lindt chocolate, and studded with melting pools of luxurious Lindt Lindor truffles. Basically, they’re delicious, and you should make them.

While these aren’t the quickest thing you’ll ever make, they’re definitely worth the time. A well-made brownie is an experience in itself. The silky texture, that flaky top, and the unbelievable richness of the chocolate. No cake-like texture, no stale cocoa flavour, and definitely not like a dry mouthful of bad chocolate cake.

A box of chocolates from a corner shop would be nice, but these Melting Lindt Lindor Brownies would be nicer. Just WAIT until you bite into that centre…

To make these brownies? (Scroll further for full recipe and instructions!)

Preheat your oven and grease and line a tin to bake the brownies in, both 20x20cm (8x8in) or 20x30cm (8x12in) tins have worked well for me.

Chop up your butter and dark/milk chocolate and melt together gently in a heatproof bowl either in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water until smooth.

While the chocolate and butter melt, weigh your flour and cocoa powder into a small bowl.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt until just combined.

Once melted, pour the butter/chocolate mixture into the bowl of egg mixture and whisk to incorporate.

Tip in the flour and cocoa mixture and gently fold together with a spoon or spatula until just combined.

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared tin.

Stud the top with equal rows of Lindt Lindor truffles, one for each brownie!

Bake until the brownies are no longer wobbly when the tray is shaken, and they have a nice shiny crackled top.

Allow to cool before slicing if you can. (This isn’t a quick bake, but it’s so worth it!)

Enjoy!
